> I would like to know how much Buspar to take for sexual side effects from Lexapro. I am on 60 mg/day and had no effect.

That's highly individualized, and there's no guarantee Buspar will work for you. Normally you start at 15mg/daily and work your way up. If I were you though, I would choose Wellbutrin or (especially) a psychostimulant as they almost always help. 5-10mg of Ritalin or an amphetamine an hour before sexual activity can work wonders.

There's also Periactin (cyproheptadine), an antihistamine with antiserotonergic properties that is sometimes used on an as-needed basis to reverse antidepressant-induced sexual side effects. However, it also reverses the positive effects of the medication momentarily.
